Just purchased one of these machines (white). Love it so far. I am installing a few accessories here and there but I do have a question.
I did a little ride on Sunday, about 60 miles. Now granted I am not sure if the dealer filled the tank completely but, after those 60 miles I got home with one bar showing on the gas gauge. Does that sound right? I have not filled it yet to see what how many gallons it takes but thinking the mileage would be better . Others with us did not seem to burn that much. Polaris rigs. Just asking.

My gas gauge is very conservative it only took 5 gallons to fill when 2 bars showing, another time the empty was flashing and it still had over 2 gallons in it.
mover the weekend we did 65 miles of fast desert sand and tra

I did take it to the dealer. They completely checked the fuel tank/gauge. Drained the tank. Refilled a gallon at a time all while check ohm readings. Verified with Kawasaki tech support that apparently all is good. You need to let it settle they say. Cycle the key maybe they say. There is now a ticket with corporate concerning the fuel gauge. First drive was 60 miles, came home showing 1 bar on gauge. I filled it with 5.8 gallons. Had plenty left. Yesterday I go 45 miles, 3 bars showing. I turned key on next day, shows full. Filled with 3.1 gallons. so who knows.

That's crazy, for the life of me I can't think what it could be. Hopefully you get a quick response from Kawasaki.

Always carry a 2gal Rotopax under the seat. Never trusted gas gauges and don't really care for walking. My X3 gas gauge is not all that great either and flakes out some times. After you get some miles and log a few rides you'll begin to know what kind of range you really have and you can start to care less about what the gauge might say at any given time

Ok first is the gauge reading the incorrect amount.. one bar flashing and just about 5 gallons left in tank. There are other threads on the forum that talks about the vent valve. I can say that replacing the vent valve fixes the problem of pressure in the tank (open the gas cap slowly and you will hear it) AND it fixed the gauge problem!
